The Summer Seekers by Sarah Morgan

Thank you to HQ Books for a digital review copy of this book via NetGalley. I’ve read and enjoyed many of Sarah Morgan’s books over the past couple of years (including Family for Beginners last year – my review is at and I’m sharing a mini review today.


Kathleen is eighty years old. After a run-in with an intruder, her daughter wants her to move into a residential home. She’s not having any of it. What she craves – needs – is adventure.

Liza is drowning under the daily stress of family life. The last thing she needs is her mother jetting off on a wild holiday, making Liza dream of a solo break of her own.

Martha is having a quarter-life crisis. Unemployed, unloved and uninspired, she just can’t get her life together. But she knows something has to change.

When Martha sees Kathleen’s advert for a driver and companion to take an epic road trip across America, she decides this job might be the answer to her prayers. Travelling with a stranger? No problem. She’s not the world’s best driver, but it couldn’t be worse than living with her parents again. And anyway, how much trouble can one eighty-year-old woman be?

As these women embark on the journey of a lifetime, they all discover it’s never too late for adventure…

My thoughts:

Another uplifting book by Sarah Morgan. The three main characters all need to reassess their lives and this summer is the time to do it. I loved my virtual journey across Route 66 – something my husband is keen to do (and maybe we will travel there one day – the book has certainly inspired me to want to visit some of the places).

Sarah Morgan’s characters looks at how the past can stop us reaching our full potential and how we need to take time to do the things we enjoy. The story features secrets, family issues, travel, sightseeing and romance. Happy to recommend for a summer read.
